Our program made the journey over to Crookston to partner with the Polk County Public Health and WIC site and provide preventative services on June 21st and 26th! Please come visit us in July on the 19th and 24th if you do not already have a dental home and are in need of preventative services.
On June 12th and 13th we traveled to Thief River Falls, MN. We were able to see patients on our second day and we were excited at the reception we received from the staff at the clinic. We will be back in July to gather forms and hopefully we will be able to see many more children and adults for preventative services!
Northern Dental Access Center has received a grant from Healthier Minnesota Community Clinic Fund which consists of a portable dental unit. A team which consists of a Dental Hygienist and a Dental Assistant will be able to perform preventative services such as cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatments, oral health instruction, and screening for decay and other oral health problems. Our goals include preventative services and proper referrals for the elimination of pain and disease for this under served population, as well as to provide education and increasing awareness of oral health and it's impact on overall wellness throughout our community.
